Nana – Don’t you just love Nana!

She’s adorable and sweet, never says no to a challenge and loves her grandchildren like… well, like a Nana ought too!

She and Granddad have retired to the Gold Coast, and what a beautiful place to be. She and Granddad are parents to Bandit.

Granddad – He’s that guy in the background right?

The one that hilariously never got asked to try the floss, yet was there anyways giving it a go. He’s the cuddly Granddad, living it up in sunny Queensland.

Oh and his name is Bob!

Bandit – This heart-throb of a dad has‘dad of the year’ written all over him!

No matter how he’s feeling he always musters up the energy to invent amazing imaginative games with his family.

What you may not have realised is he is an archaeologist by trade (cue jokes about a dog and a bone)!! He’s also totally besotted by his beautiful wife. 

Chilli – The super cool mum of Bluey and Bingo.

She’s fun, sporty, witty and has a heart of gold.

She can find an important lesson to be learned in all situations and makes everyday a good day.

Fun fact: Notice how Chill has to head off to work sometimes? Well that’s because she started back at her pre-kids job, working in Airport Security. Sniffer dog perhaps? I’ll leave that up to you.

Bluey – The 6-year-old, playful and chatty Blue Healer. Bluey is imaginative in her games and loves role playing.

No matter who is involved, you can be sure to see her telling everybody what they should be doing!

She’s the sort of big sister that needs to be reminded of her little sister’s capabilities. Remember her listening ears?

Bingo – This 4-year-old little sister is a Red Healer – just like mum!

She’s the quieter sister, ready to play, but timid at the same time. Sometimes she forgets to be brave and share her feelings.

Bingo adores her sister, Bluey and loves the games they play. But sometimes she gets lost in a world of her own… oh look a butterfly!

Uncle Stripe – This little brother of Bandit is a gentle soul who seems to always go with the flow.

He has 2 busy and, at times, crazy kids and doesn’t pass up the opportunity to challenge his big bro.

He’s also always wishing he could be watching the cricket.

Aunt Trixie– A hockey playing Aunty with personality plus. She’s Uncle Stripe’s Wife, and mother to Muffin and Socks.

She’s totally relatable with the love she has for her 2 little ones, but equally for her love of getting the heck out of there for some much needed mum time!

Muffin – Bluey and Bingo’s cousin who always tells it likes it is.

Did you know her favourite capsicum colour is Red? Yep, there’s some useful information you probably didn’t need.

She makes us all sigh when she’s bouncing off the walls from lack of sleep – yep we know them days!

Socks – The littlest member of the family, who is adorably learning to speak.

She’s the 1-year-old baby sister of Muffin, who seems to easily keep up with her bigger cousins.

And I know, I know you’re all wondering what her favourite colour capsicum is….GREEN!

Jack – A lively little man whose best friends with Rusty. 

Rusty – Bluey’s friend from the bush. And he rides a motorbike, which makes him extra cool… and also probably a parent’s worst nightmare!

Lucky – The Heelers’ next door neighbour.

Pat – Lucky’s dad. Pat is the best next door neighbour, who goes along with the crazy games of the Heelers – whether he knows it or not! 

Mackenzie – With the oh-so-cool New Zealand accent. 

Indy – The most trustworthy friend, with a big imagination. She’s also so relatable with her list of no-go foods!

Honey – The friend with the big green glasses, who’s mindful of others and oh-so-thoughtful. 

Coco – Pretty in pink! She reminds us all of our daughters. So enthusiastic but impatient!

Snickers – This little friend is a machine, atom, star loving pup. 

Chloe – Bluey’s best friend. A kind, gentle and smart little lady. 

Judo – A neighbour. With a sharp looking headband, if I do say so myself. 

Jean Luc – Bluey’s future husband (not really, but I sure hope we get to see her reconnect with her camping buddy). 

The Terriers – They’re a force to be reckoned with. They would fight your battles until the end! Well the end of the school day that is. 

Missy – The little girl in pigtails, who steps up and shows her bravery….when she’s ready to, of course. 

Buddy – Ahhhh Buddy, the patience of a caterpillar just waiting to fly. 

Winston – A very obedient breed, as he likes to point out. An old soul. 

Calypso – An Aussie Shepherd and Bluey’s Prep teacher (preschool). She’s the teacher of everyone’s dreams: loving, patient and let’s the kids’ minds go where their imagination takes them – with plenty of encouragement of course! 

So there you have it, Bluey, the loveable Blue Healer has an equally lovable extended family and friends, which has me thinking, who do you relate to most?

Bluey is an Australian animated television series for preschoolers that premiered on ABC Kids on 1 October 2018. The program was created by Joe Brumm with Queensland production group Ludo Studio. It was co-commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and the British Broadcasting Corporation, with BBC Studios holding global distribution and merchandising rights. The series made its premiere on Disney Junior in the United States and was released internationally on Disney+.

The show follows Bluey, an anthropomorphic six-year-old Blue Heelerpuppy who is characterised by her abundance of energy, imagination and curiosity of the world. The young dog lives with her father, Bandit; mother, Chilli; and younger sister, Bingo, who regularly joins Bluey on adventures as the pair embark on imaginative play together. Other characters featured each represent a different dog breed. Overarching themes include the focus on family, growing up and Australian culture. The program was created and produced in Queensland; its capital city Brisbane inspires the show's setting.

Bluey has received consistently high viewership in Australia on both broadcast television and video on demand services. It has influenced the development of merchandise and a stage show featuring its characters. The program won a Logie Award for Most Outstanding Children's Program in 2019 as well as an International Emmy Kids Award. It has been praised by television critics for depicting a modern everyday family life, constructive parenting messages and the role of Bandit as a positive father figure. Minor shortcomings in regards to inclusive language have been criticised. Bluey was renewed for a third series in October 2020.


The child characters of Bluey are voiced by children of the program's production crew and are not credited as voice performers.[1][2]

In July 2017, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) co-commissioned Bluey as an animated series for preschool children to be developed by Queensland production company Ludo Studio.[17][18] The production received funding from Screen Australia and Screen Queensland, with the setting of the series drawing upon the unique semi-tropical Queensland climate.[17] Created by Joe Brumm, the series was inspired by his experience in raising two daughters. Brumm wanted to portray the importance of children participating in imaginative play, creating the title character Bluey as a Cattle Dog to give the series an Australian voice.[17] Brumm had previously worked on children's programs in the United Kingdom as a freelance animator and decided to create Bluey as a replica of the program Peppa Pig for an Australian audience.[6][19] He conceived the idea independently in 2016, and produced a one-minute pilot through his company Studio Joho, with a small team in their spare time.[5] Brumm approached Ludo Studio to develop the series; co-founders Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson pitched the pilot at conferences such as MIPCOM in France.[5][20][21] Brumm stated that the first pilot contained some "dangerous" character behaviours which drew the attention of studio executives.[5][note 1] Pearson expressed that it was difficult to pitch the series as it was not high-concept; but rather "just a show about family and games".[4][22]

The studio developed a five-minute animation sample that was pitched at the Asian Animation Summit in Brisbane in 2016, and was thereby noticed by ABC and BBC executives.[19][23][24] Michael Carrington of the ABC viewed the presentation and secured $20,000 of funding for the studio to produce a refined, seven-minute pilot.[5][23] The new pilot was presented at the Asian Animation Summit in 2017.[5] The two networks officially ordered 52 seven-minute episodes of Bluey, with the BBC investing 30 percent of the funding and acquiring the global rights for distribution and merchandising.[6][17] The series was produced entirely in Australia by a local team, many of whom were first-time animators from Brisbane.[6] The program was announced to premiere in Australia on ABC Kids, followed by CBeebies.[17][18]



"There's no counting in Bluey, there's no learning this or that ... just show ’em playing. It's to show parents that the kids aren't just mucking around. They’re learning to play, learning to share ... and generally you can just put your feet up and let ’em do it."

—Joe Brumm, 2019[6]

The stories featured in Bluey depict Bluey and Bingo engaging in imaginative play.[1] Brumm wanted to show that self-directed and unstructured play is natural in shaping children and allowing them to develop.[1] He consulted research based on socio-dramatic play, reading the works of Sara Smilansky and Vivian Paley, who both had backgrounds in early childhood education.[21] The episodes show the parents as guides for their children, who allow them to explore their immediate surroundings independently, giving them opportunities to practise adult roles.[1] Brumm drew inspiration for scripts from his own experiences in watching his daughters play, which he described was "as natural to them as breathing".[5][6][18] The program's scripts show how children can use gameplay to learn lessons and integrate the world of adults into their own; Brumm noticed how his children would recreate interactions such as visits to the doctor, through roleplay.[5][25] Pearson stated that gameplay represents children's first experiences of collaboration, cooperation, responsibility and emotions such as jealousy.[5] Brumm discovered the importance of play-based learning after his daughter struggled with formal education, which led him to exclude elements of literacy and numeracy in Bluey and focus on the depiction of life skills.[6] Brumm stated that he wanted the series to depict his experience as a parent rather than aim for children to be explicitly taught something.[21] His creative aims were to make children laugh, and show parents what children can learn while engaged in play.[21]

The characters of Bluey each represent a particular dog breed, some of which are drawn from Brumm's personal life. Brumm had a Blue Heeler named Bluey throughout his childhood, in addition to a Dalmatian named Chloe.[5] Bandit is based on a Blue Heeler belonging to his father's friend.[5] Bandit's career as an archaeologist was inspired by Brumm's older sibling Adam.[5]

Brumm writes the majority of episode scripts, with Aspinwall labelling the series as an "observational" show, depicting Brumm's family life; and producer Sam Moor describing it as "[Brumm's] life on screen".[22][23][note 2] Brumm's process for writing sometimes begins with making notes about his family's experiences; including games his children play and the conflict that arises between them.[5] For this reason, Brumm has described the process as a challenge for other writers on the series.[5] Moor stated that there are few writers besides Brumm, mostly animators already working on the series.[5] The program was designed to be a co-viewing experience for parents and their children to enjoy together.[6][20] Brumm described the process of writing each episode as "a chance to make a short film".[26] The conflict and humour in the episodes stems from Bandit's relationship with his daughters.[23] Bluey has been described as "rough and tumble" by Pearson, with both her and Bingo being seen to subvert the stereotypes of female characters, but rather have the characteristics of real puppies.[22] This has led to uninformed viewers questioning if the characters are boys or girls.[22] Pearson has credited the decision of Bluey and Bingo being girls to resemble the real families of Brumm, Aspinwall and McCormack.[22] In relation to the humour of the series, Brumm has stated there is a lot of physical activity and "craziness".[26]

Storyboarding and animation

Bluey is animated in-house at Ludo Studio in Brisbane, in Fortitude Valley, where approximately 50 people work on the program.[21][22] Costa Kassab serves as one of the art director of the series, who has been credited with drawing the locations of the series which are based on real places in Brisbane, including parks and shopping centres.[22][note 3] Brumm determines the specific locations which are to be included.[22] Post-production of the series takes place externally in South Brisbane.[22]

Approximately fifteen episodes of the series are developed by the studio at any one time across a range of production stages.[22] After story ideas are conceived, the script-writing process takes place for up to two months.[22] The episodes are then storyboarded by artists, who produce 500 to 800 drawings over three weeks while consulting the writer's script.[22][note 4] After the storyboard is finished, a black and white animatic is produced, to which the dialogue recorded independently by voice artists is added.[22] The episodes are then worked on for four weeks by animators, background artists, designers, and layout teams.[22] The entire production team views a near-completed episode of Bluey on a Friday.[22] Pearson stated that over time, the viewings developed into test screenings, with members of production bring their family, friends and children to watch the episode.[22] The complete production process for an episode takes three months.[22]

During the lockdown period of the 2019–20 COVID-19 pandemic, the production staff of 50 were required to work on the episodes remotely from home.[5] A skeleton crew of three remained working on the series at the studio.[5] After restrictions eased in May, this number increased to ten and later 20.[27]


The series features David McCormack, from the band Custard, as the voice of Bluey's father, Bandit. He was initially approached to read what he assumed would only be "a couple of lines", but ended up voicing Bandit for the entire pilot.[3] McCormack performs his voice work for the series remotely in Sydney, which is then sent to the production company in Brisbane.[3] He stated that he does not hear any other voice actors or view footage while recording, and that he doesn't alter his own voice to produce Bandit's dialogue.[3] Melanie Zanetti provides the voice of Bluey's mother, Chilli; she became interested in the series after reading the script for the pilot.[4][note 5]

Brumm's mother, Chris Brumm, voices Nana Heeler, while his younger brother, Dan Brumm, voices Uncle Stripe, as well as working as a sound designer on the series.[5][10] The child characters of the series, including Bluey and Bingo, are voiced by some of the children of the program's production crew.[1][2]


Main article: Bluey: The Album

Joff Bush serves as one of the primary composers of Bluey, writing half of the soundtrack himself and leading a group of additional composers, including David Barber.[28][29] Bush graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium, where he met Pearson, and before Bluey worked on series such as The Family Law and Australian Survivor.[28] Bush has stated that each episode has its own unique musical style, and he likes to become involved in the episodes as they are scripted.[28] Live instruments are regularly played for the recordings.[28] Every episode of Bluey is individually scored, a decision made by Brumm, who was inspired by the original compositions for Charlie and Lola while working on the series in the United Kingdom.[19]

Classical music is regularly used throughout the underscore, with pieces such as Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" and Mozart's "Rondo Alla Turca (from Sonata No. 11)" being interpreted by composers.[30] Bush composed the theme song for Bluey and was nominated for two APRA Screen Music Awards, in 2019 for the soundtrack of the episode "Teasing" and in 2020 for "Flat Pack".[28][31][32] The music for Bluey is licensed by Universal Music Publishing on behalf of BBC Worldwide Music Publishing.[31] The first soundtrack for the series, Bluey: The Album, was released on 22 January 2021.[33] It debuted at number one on the ARIA Albums Chart,[34] and became the first children's album to reach the top of the charts in Australia.[35]


A central theme of the series is the influence of a supportive family; this is reflected in the relationships between Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli.[2] The Heeler family are presented as a nuclear family. Brumm was eager to reflect contemporary parenting practices, with both adults shown to be working parents; Bandit as an archaeologist and Chilli working part-time in airport security.[2][4][19] Bethany Hiatt of The West Australian explains that the series depicts the realities of modern-day fatherhood, with Bandit seen regularly doing housework and engaging in imaginative play with his children.[20] Chilli's role as a mother is explored as she balances both work and family life.[36] Both parents are shown to acknowledge and validate the emotions of their children, such as Bluey's distress after the death of a bird.[37] Bluey and Bingo are shown to navigate their sibling relationship throughout the episodes, learning how to work together, compromise, and resolve conflicts.[26][38] Episodes detail the family's contemporary domestic lifestyle, with Philippa Chandler of The Guardian describing the series as "social realism".[23][39]

Jacaranda trees are featured in the series as an example of flora in Australia.

The series also explores Australian culture, and is set in subtropical Queensland.[17] The animation of Australian architecture in the series is designed to reflect the typical residential designs of Brisbane; high-set suburban dwellings with characteristic verandas, against representations of Brisbane skylines.[3] The characters speak with Australian accents in local and international airings.[4] The series has a focus on the Australian sense of humour with dry wit frequently expressed through the dialogue.[23][36] Several episodes detail the exploration of Australia's climate and nature.[3] The characters encounter Australian wildlife such as fruit bats, wallabies, kookaburras and ibises.[19]Flora of Australia are also depicted in the series, including Poinciana trees and Jacaranda trees.[19] Brumm expressed that he didn't want to exaggerate the stereotypes of Australia.[19]

The series advocates the importance of play throughout childhood.[6] Bluey and Bingo are the vehicle used to display this theme; the episode "Trampoline" features Bandit imploring Bluey to continue creating new games to play.[6] The siblings engage in imaginative play during "mundane" activities such as visiting the doctor or going to the supermarket.[23][25] The parents are shown to engage in the play with their children.[37] Bluey and Bingo also engage in imaginative play with their friends; learning lessons such as the importance of following the rules.[40] The characters also learn lessons such as the influence of technology, the economy and personal finance through their gameplay.[38][40] Pearson has stated that the characters experience emotions such as jealousy and regret through their gameplay.[22] He commented that, while there is no antagonist in the series, these emotions form the central conflicts of the program.[22]

The character of Jack is shown to have attention deficit issues; he states that he "can't sit still or remember anything".[14] Upon the online character announcement, parents praised the representation of children with attention deficit issues.[14]

Critical reception

Bluey has enjoyed a positive critical reception.[23] The series received a seal of approval from Common Sense Media, with reviewer Emily Ashby commending its positive family and social themes.[68]Bluey was praised by Philippa Chandler of The Guardian for its "sharp script" and depiction of everyday family life, while commenting that its Queensland background set it apart from other cartoons on television.[23] Readers of The New York Times's parenting blog submitted Bluey as their favourite children's show, describing it as charming, smart and "very real".[69] The series was called "laugh-out-loud funny" by Stephanie Convery of The Guardian, who credited its humour to the "quirky behaviour" of the child characters.[70] In 2019, TV Week listed Bluey at No. 98 in its list of the 101 greatest Australian television shows of all time.[71] Despite only being on air since 2018, the magazine wrote that Bluey "stole Australia's hearts faster than any other cartoon character" in what it described as a "cute, funny and modern" series.[71] The series was listed at No. 14 in Junkee's list of 50 television programs that defined the decade, in which it was described as "an absolute delight".[72] In a list published by Rolling Stone of the top 100 sitcoms of all time, Bluey was listed at No. 96, being the only Australian series to be featured.[73]

The series received praise for its constructive parenting messages and depiction of Bandit Heeler as a positive father figure.[20] The character was commended for his patient nature, willingness to do housework and play with his children.[20] Jennifer McClellan of USA Today described Bandit as "sarcastic, sympathetic and silly".[38] He has been received as "more emotionally intelligent" than the father from Peppa Pig.[23] Reporters for The Guardian wrote that the show's messages about parenting align with published literature on parental wellbeing, noting how the show depicts the importance of play and learning social skills in child development.[37] McClellan acknowledged the family dynamic of the characters; she described Chilli as the "voice of reason" and noted how Bluey and Bingo learn to navigate their sibling relationship.[38][74] Convery commented that the sisters are accurate depictions of children, and that the roles of the parents are not presented as stereotypical of their respective genders.[70] The series has also received online praise for its representation of attention deficit issues through the character of Jack.[14]

The website of the series was criticised for, in the character description of Chilli, suggesting that her return to part-time work prevents her from being as involved a parent as other mothers.[75] The description was later altered.[75] A separate incident saw an apology issued by the ABC in August 2020 in relation to the usage of the term "ooga booga" in the episodes "Teasing" and "Flat Pack", which was described as a term with "racial connotations and a problematic history for Indigenous Australians" through a viewer complaint.[76][77] The ABC claimed that the term had only been intended as "irreverent rhyming slang made up by children", and maintained their commitment to addressing discrimination.[77] The two episodes were temporarily removed from rotations before being edited to remove the term, which prompted mixed reactions from viewers.[76][77]


Bluey has received consistently high viewership on ABC Kids in Australia, becoming the most watched children's program across all channels on broadcast television in 2018 and 2019.[20][65] The highest-rating live broadcast of the program, the final episode of the second series, "Easter", premiered on 4 April 2021 to 607,000 viewers.[78][79] It was the most-watched broadcast across all free-to-air multichannels, and the third most-watched broadcast overall.[78][79] In 2019, the series was the most-watched program through time shifting.[43][80]

In March 2019, it was reported that Bluey had become the most downloaded program in the history of ABC's video on demand and catch up TV service ABC iview, with 21.3 million total episode plays.[20] Within one year of the show's premiere, this figure had risen to 152 million, and by May 2020, there had been 261 million plays of episodes from the first series.[5][81] It was also reported that the second series had totalled 43 million episode plays by May.[81] By May 2021, episodes from both series had generated over 480 million plays.[55]

It was announced that a stage show based on Bluey was being developed in November 2019.[54] The live stage show, titled Bluey's Big Play, will tour in fifty theatres around Australia and will feature the characters from the series.[54][116] The tour was initially scheduled to begin in May 2020, but was delayed due to restrictions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.[117] After eased restrictions, two preview performances were held at the Canberra Theatre Centre in January 2021 before further shows across the country.[118]

"For real life?!" ― Bluey's catchphrase[source]

Bluey Heeler


Light blue, blue, dark blue and tan

Bluey Heeler is the titular protagonist, daughter of Bandit and Chilli, the older sister of Bingo, and niece of Uncle Stripe and Aunt Trixie. Description

"Bluey is a 6 year old Blue Heeler pup who loves to play. Her parents and teacher give her lots of time to practice, which means she’s become very good at inventing games, helping everyone choose their roles and deciding on the rules. Her favourite games are ones that involve lots of other kids and grown-ups (especially her dad) and she mainly likes to pretend she’s a grown-up doing grownup things herself."


Bluey is a Blue Heeler with light blue, blue, dark blue and tan fur. She has a rectangular shaped body, and has light blue paws, outer muzzle, eyebrows and chest, blue legs, arms, torso, head and tail stem, dark blue torso spots, tail tip, outer ears and head spots, and tan inner ears and muzzle. She also has a black nose.


Bluey in general is an energetic character who loves to play as described on the official page. She can be a bit too bossy when she plays games, as seen in the Magic Xylophone episode and some other episodes. She can be easily distracted as seen in the episode Hide and Seek. She really likes to play with her friends.


Bluey is one of the Heeler's family members. She's a daughter of Bandit and Chilli and has a younger sister called Bingo. Her neighbourhood friends includes Lucky and Judo. She's also friend with most students at Calypso's School and best friends with Chloe.


The following is a list of Nicknames used for or by Bluey throughout the series.


  • Being the main protagonist, Bluey has never made an absence on any episode.
  • Bluey is often mistaken as a male by many viewers.
    • This is acknowledged in Double Babysitter when Uncle Rad said, "cause he's blue," after which Bluey corrects him, saying that she is a girl.
  • Bluey's favourite animal is fruit bat, as seen on episode Fruit Bat.
  • Bluey's favourite colour of capsicum (bell pepper) is yellow, as mentioned in the episode BBQ.
  • Bluey's favourite breakfast is fruit salad, as mentioned in the episode Fruit Bat.
  • Bluey's older version can be seen at the end of episode Camping.
  • Bluey's family is the first to have a known surname.
  • Bluey once played as a cameo, as seen on episode Army.
  • Bluey and Bingo have unlockable Emojis on the DisneyNOW app and website that can be used on the user's profile. These emojis use the art style of Disney Emoji Blitz, a match-3 puzzle game for mobile phones.
  • She may be unable to read as seen in Takeaway and Bus, although in some episodes as well as in the short Crazy Christmas Lights, she can be seen presumably reading a book. However, she might just be looking at pictures.
    • She is also intrigued by the fact that her buddy Mia can write, which could mean that she is unable to either.
    • In Library, she can be seen reading aloud, which could mean that Bluey is starting to be able to read. Though again, she could just be trying to retell the story through the pictures.
  • Throughout Bin Night, she is shown to have a white belt on an unspecified martial art.
    • Later in the episode, she can be seen advanced to the yellow belt.
  • Bluey plays the recorder, as shown in Queens and Bin Night.
  • Baby Race features Bluey when she was still a baby.
  • In Baby Race, Chilli confirms that Bluey is still two years older than Bingo, although she might just be approximating (either by default or excess).
    • It is possible while Bingo's fifth birthday happened in Handstand, Bluey's seventh birthday must've happened off screen sometime before Handstand or is to happen slightly after it.
  • In Burger Shop, it is mentioned that she is in preschool, more specifically a preparatory school as stated in Calypso's bio.
  • In Jingle Bells short, this marks the first short where Bluey speaks.
  • In the ABC Kids Listen app's Story Time promo, she briefly cameos as a drawing on a smartphone.
  • Even though she has the physical appearance of a Blue Heeler, she is technically a Red/Blue crossbreed.
  • It is likely that she is named after a real dog in Australia named Bluey, who lived to be nearly 30 years old and was the oldest dog to ever live. [1]

  26. The pilot episode was also good, which managed to turn into an actual episode.

Bad Qualities

  1. It can be somewhat boring or mean-spirited sometimes.
  2. The show has some bad, boring, repetitive or mediocre episodes like "The Doctor", "Sticky Gecko" and "Charades".
    • Speaking of bad morals, There was one bad moral in the episode "Charades" about getting anything you want when you throw a tantrum.
    • Some episodes like "Hairdressers" and "Backpackers" resolves torturing Bandit, Chilli or both (most likely unintentionally, but still).
    • While episodes like “Dunny” and “Work” are good, they tend to use some toilet humour and unneeded butt jokes.
    • Episodes such as "The Weekend", "Markets" and "Handstand", while both being decent, can come across as either repetitive or boring.
  3. There's some unfunny gross-out jokes and unnecessary toilet humor here and there, like the infamous scene in "Work". Fortunately, the Disney Junior airings of the show cut them out.
  4. The voices of Bluey and Bingo can be annoying to hear at times for some people, especially if they scream or squeal.
  5. While the animation is very fluid and well-made, it may have some errors found in some episodes, the notable episodes are "Takeaway" and "Horsey Ride".
  6. Like modern media, it uses some dated pop-culture references that tries to be "hip", "trendy" and "cool" to the audience such as flossing and fidget spinners.
    • In fact, they had an entire episode dedicated to flossing, making the episode a lot more dated than it needs to be.
  7. Some characters like Bluey can be a bit unlikable sometimes.
    • Judo also isn't any better, especially due to her bratty and bossy nature. An example is in Butterflies, where Bingo wanted to be the caterpillar, but Judo said she couldn't because it was her turn.
    • Muffin was even more unlikable in bad episodes like "Charades".
  8. It had two bad controversies about the show.
    • The description of Chilli (known as Mum) was so inappropriate that it was changed to make it more appropriate for kids.
    • Two of the episodes, Teasing and Flat Pack, were pulled from the ABC Kids iView and ABC iView apps due to racist depictions of Aboriginals. They subsequently removed the racist stuff on these two episodes and were later re-released.
  9. While the music is very well composed, The Lollipop Song from the episode "Bad Mood" got criticized by most people for being annoying and was said to be one of the worst Bluey songs of all time.

Wiki bluey characters

Bluey (cane)

Bluey (7 giugno 1910 – 14 novembre 1939) è stata una cagnolina australiana di proprietà di Les ed Esma Hall di Rochester, Victoria, Australia. Secondo il Guinness World Records, Bluey ha vissuto 29 anni e 5 mesi ed è il cane più vecchio mai verificato. Tre proprietari hanno fatto affermazioni per i cani più longevi Max, Maggie e Bella, ma queste affermazioni non sono state verificate in modo indipendente. L'età di Bluey, insieme a quella di "Cilla", un mix di Labrador Retriever e Australian Cattle Dog riferito di aver vissuto l'età di 32 anni e 12 giorni, ha spinto uno studio sulla longevità dell'Australian Cattle Dog per esaminare se la razza potesse avere una longevità eccezionale. L'indagine su 100 cani ha prodotto una longevità media di 13,41 anni con una deviazione standard di 2,36 anni. Lo studio ha concluso che mentre gli Australian Cattle Dogs vivono in media quasi un anno in più rispetto alla maggior parte dei cani di altre razze nella stessa classe di peso, i casi di Bluey e Chilla dovrebbero essere considerati eccezioni insolite piuttosto che indicatori di longevità comune per questo intera razza. Morì nel 1939.
